Legacy is everything. DNA is handed down. Language is handed down. Property is handed down. Sex sells and this means that a man or woman’s personhood is what appeals to people. African-Americans have the most excess to their diets but the least cash compared to all other races.

British Author J.K. Rowling writes books that are only about countries that the United States and United Kingdom share as allies for the expansion of her literary work. The first African-American executive editor of the New York Times is not a college graduate and it’s ironic that dropopouts are more prevalent in the black community. The United Kingdom’s throne is handed down no matter the background of the person. Our media outlets and newspapers are being handed down like that and with no regards to the scruples of the person.

We yell ‘fake news!’ with no urge to search for real news. We say that President Trump is SIC which is short for Shamer-In-Chief but cannot see the mistakes we all have made. We dismantle statues of people for their bad choices to favor other people who have wronged as well. Our world needs to stop absorbing itself so that others can share in our blessings. Egos cannot be handed down — but character can.
